Biomechanics facilities for better productivity in the workplace. With a focus on workplace injury prevention, UWA’s world-class occupational biomechanics facilities include 3D motion capture, dynamometry and electromyography equipment to assess the impacts and performance of a wide range of workplace tasks.
These facilities provide industry with scientific data to identify high-risk workplace activities, support decision making regarding occupational safety and health (OSH) risk mitigation strategies and policies, and help reduce the likelihood of workplace compensation claims.
“We can simulate the biomechanics of any movement – from subtle vibrations to dynamic full-body actions – and predict the likely impact on the muscle and body in the short and long term”
says Winthrop Professor Tim Ackland, a world-leader in occupational biomechanics.
